[SOLD] 1000mm f/11 and 300mm f/4

Greetings,
I'm new to this forum, and have not shot conventional film for over five years. Even then I shot primarily Nikon at work, however my personal cameras were Pentax (LX and K1000). I am contemplating selling my long lenses, a 1000mm f/11 and 300mm f/4 A-star, both Pentax brand, and both in perfect condition. Just fishing around to see if there is any interest in these lenses within the Pentax user group before I put them on Ebay. Feel free to contact me via this forum or via private email.
Since this is my first post here I may not have "filled in all the blanks", just let me know if you need further information. Thanks!

Welcome to the forums! I'm sure that there will be plenty of interest in those lenses around here. However, there are a few rules for selling on these forums.

fair enough, like I said, first time posting. I have just started researching the values, saw where someone paid $1,400 US for a similar 1000mm, and obviously that got my interest up. Truthfully I am thinking more in the lines of $1,200usd for the mirror lens and $400usd for the telephoto. I will certainly entertain "best offers" as requested. thanks

I would be interested in the 300 if it's still available. Note location but can be sent to US address if required.

Ok, here's the deal. Like I said in the first post I was just fishing to see if there might be any interest before posting on EBAY, I would rather deal with people who know and understand the product. Seems like there may be some interest here so I will shoot some photos of the lenses and post them. Might take a couple days as I am tied up on assignment right now, but it will get done. I am new to this forum, is it kosher to deal privately via email or should all correspondence be done via the forum? Thanks for the replies.

The vast majority of deals are doen either via PM and email. The prospective buyer will post a note here in the thread to say they are interested and then the 'negotiations' are done privately. You might consider posting your Ebay name to allow some feedback checking since you are new here and you can check the FB of people on this site as well before commiting to a deal.

Just click on the buyers name and go to 'public profile' Then click on 'statistics'. Scroll down to find the forum feedback for that person. For example you'll find a page like this for mine:

https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/feedback.php?u=2071

I'm interested myself (1000mm) and will wait till the pictures. If you are OK with it, our Lens Database is missing the picture from the 1000mm. If you don't mind I'll send one of your pictures to Adam for that.

Ok, I think that I am starting to get the feel for how this forum works. I do NOT have an Ebay account, I was going to put the lenses on there as my first attempt at selling on-line, until someone allerted me to this Pentax only forum. This appeals more to me since all on here know the brand and are more likely to be interested. Plus I figure if someone here buys these lenses they will actually get used again. Like I said they have been sitting on my shelf for a few years.
I just noticed how the respond via private email works, and was interested to see the replies there. I will get around to replying to those, but let me say this publicly, yes, I will post photos, but it might take a couple days, and yes, the 1000mm f/11 is a SMC Pentax reflex lens with the built in filters. Yes, both have cases and lense caps. Thanks all for your interest.

If you had chosen to list these as your first ebay items, you might not have got a very good price for them. People tend to be suspicious of ebay sellers with zero feedback offering rare and high-value items!

Ok, here are a few quick images of the lenses. I did these during "coffee" this am just to get some images up for those that have asked. When I have more time I can shoot some more detailed images, those requests can probably be handled through private email. Thanks again for all those that have inquired. I will be out of the office this afternoon and not near a computer, so if these images do not load correctly I will try again tomorrow.
So, I just tried to upload to this message and it would not let me, sorry. Might be a MAC/Firefox issue. I will just send the images to those that have emailed me for the time being, unitl I figure this upload interface out.

Sorry, could not figure out how to send the photos, even through the private contact function, see, I was not lying when I said I was new to this forum. I'm a MAC user and used to just dragging and dropping. I will be able to put more time into it tomorrow and will try to get those images to those who are interested. Thanks for your patience. I am out the rest of the day.
